Location: Bohemia, NY
Shape: Other
Duration: 8 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Large orange lighted craft slowly flying over our house and making a mechanical noise that I had never heard before at 2:15am on July 2

At about 2:15am on the 24th of July, 2015, my girlfriend and I woke up to an unusually loud sound in the sky. We looked up by our bedroom window and saw the object as it went over the house low in the sky. It was travelling at a slow, deliberate speed that was practically hovering above us. It looked to be a large object at least the size of a jet plane yet the only lights consisted of two bright orange lights at the front and back of the object with no other lights or colors other than orange and glowing.

We were suspicious of the object since we live near MacArthur Airport and planes stop landing at about 11:00pm each day. This was 2:15am. The size and close proximity made it a curious sight since it was low to the ground and was the size of a jet, yet a jet would have fallen from the sky at this speed. The sound was nothing we had ever heard before, almost a grinding industrial sound but not a helicopter or a jet plane or small aircraft sound at all.
